A fairground of fun, ANTS returns and an alternative Saturday poolside party…

The weekend rolls round again and if you’re looking for some fun, there’s three new nights to get stuck into across Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The new Helter Skelter night at Zero Gravity launches tonight, then tomorrow the ANTS colony return for a big night of music at Provocateur. And for a little recovery, there’s a poolside party that’s all about the house music in the Marina.

Here are three nights out to hit up in Dubai this weekend…
